February is #BlackHistoryMonth. 🖤🐺🐾 

Black History Month is a time when communities across the nation come together to celebrate the achievements of and by Black Americans and recognize the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

This year our theme is Black Euphoria: Just B.E.  During this month we invite reflection and engagement on themes around wellness, peace, contentment, healing, tranquility, and love. 🫶🏾 This is a celebration of the fullness of what it means to live a holistic Black experience. 🖤

Q: Introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your background

A: I’m a recently retired Air Force veteran, after 22 years of service. I have also been recently admitted into the Poole College of Management’s Risk and Analytics Program where I will be starting this January in the spring semester! I am looking to start a new career in the next year in Defense Technology Space.

In 2010, I found myself on my 8th deployment to Afghanistan and unfortunately, I was catastrophically injured to the point where I didn’t know what my career would be. I spent about a year in the hospital learning how to walk again. I started going to school part-time and started working on a Bachelor’s in Intelligence Studies. After finishing my Bachelor’s, I completed a Master’s in Security Studies from East Carolina, and I finished that with a study abroad in Bosnia. Shortly after applying, I pursued an MBA at UNCW.

Q: The Masters in Risk Analytics is a very new program. What were some of the factors that made you think that this was the program for you?

A: After talking to the faculty early on in the process and being given access to the curriculum, I could see how I would use the course work in what I’m about to get into as well as commercially. I could see the course work where I would learn the data analytics skills that I want to learn and get more proficient at but then have a more disciplined direction in how I use those skills with risk analytics for finance and operational risk. I’ve seen different Business Analytics programs with some different focus areas, but nothing like this.

One of the courses, MIE410 (“Business Opportunity and Analysis”), is an upper-level course and requires students to consult with an actual startup and develop innovative solutions for the client company. Two faculty members also went to Leeds to teach the courses; one course was unique to Leeds (M380, Doing
